Friday Judgment Call: Watch, Ride, Report

Via about a billion lefty political blogs (Articulatory Loop appears to be the original source, and has a good authenticity discussion in the comments section) comes this remarkable sighting on a commuter train near the nation's capital:

(Click to enlarge)

As near as I can ascertain from readers' assertions and web links, this is an actual picture of an actual poster that many claim to have seen in person on the MARC commuter line in at least two separate locations. It's posted at a rail photo site as well. So it sems fairly safe to say that this exists ... which leaves the question remaining of whether it's genuine, i.e. whether it was placed there by the appropriate authorities in earnest (and someone really did think the blatant Stalinist Soviet imagery was a good Homeland Security tactic).

That's what you get to decide!
